I have been seeing a lot of ads on YouTube for the website Wish.com lately and it made me wonder: Is it still a scam?

I bought a $48 GTX 1050 ti, and there is something a bit dodgy about it.

Here is the video where Phil fixes a similar fake GPU: http://www.youtubesmov.com/mov/cAoK5j0T0aR/vid.html?

@Luis Magaña that's my experience of wish as well. Though there are some scams, the platform itself always refunds such items without needing to return the item first.
I've had some good stuff from wish in the last year or so.

@Joannot yep i have bought some stuff on wish some made it some didnt i ask for a refund and they did it no questioning no problems they gave me a full refund even for the products i already got. so yes there is a lot of seller scaming on wish but teh platform do respond to those who get scam. plus they keep scaming because ppl like you wont complain and ask for refund so they still making a profit.

saying wish is a scam because of a seller is like saying amazon is a scam because of a seller.
I don't care about wish never bought on wish,
But it's important to say that your clickbait title is 100% wrong.

Now sold on Amazon. I fought with this same product for WAY TOO LONG. Card I bought couldn't register on device manager. Thanks for restoring my sanity. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07YQLXMXR

Hell yes, it is still a scam. And that card looks exactly like the one I bought a year ago on Ebay. Except the green paint was blue. They called it a GTX960 with 4 gigs ram. Turns out it's a GTS450 with 1 gig ram. I ordered the hardware to straighten the BIOS out, it was like $5. And I could use the adventure, hehe. You can't tell a book by it's cover. Nor hardware by it's outward appearance. Does anybody know where I can get a screaming graphics card for under $75? jk

This is why I don't fear the Chinese military. The Chinese used by there equipment from the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union is no longer in existence. The only weapon is the AK-47, but will the Chinese population fight for a government that they themselves don't even want. They couldn't even beat the Japanese by themselves. Russia lost there last war to Japan as well.

I've learned a couple of years ago, I purchased a couple of nice dress suits. I had myself measured and I put the exact measurements, in metric. Let's just say that I will never trust China again. I will trust Chinese Americans, but I will never trust a Chinese company in China again. I may trust eBay but only if the company is in the USA 🇺🇸. The only things that have actually worked out were Charging Cords. That's it. I used to believe that China had honorable people who lives there. But getting screwed by the Chinese government everyday of there lives, they have no honor left in them.

you cant possibly have thought this GPU would actually come as advertised. Wish isn't a scam, its great for cheap stuffed animals for your nephews and badly made underwear. My girlfriend even bought a workable electric razor for me for 50 cents that hasn't even blown up yet. I think it's obvious that buying things like PC parts on a site that sells electric razors for .50 and is a bad idea

That idea to buy cheap you will without a doubt end up with junk items.....if you went shop and there was a graph card half the price you be questioning it ,,,kicked round shop , display item, or damaged to good to be true normally is 😂😂

It´s called "wish" and we can all wish. You can actually buy some cool things of wish though, bought 20 black XL t-shirts for 20 dollars a few weeks ago, they were of reasonable quality.

I bought a legit GTX 1050Ti earlier this year (2019) and it also had a VGA, so its not really unheard of.

I would never buy any computer parts from anything made in China, since they have a history of embedding hidden software.

All I picture with wish is. I order a shirt..and it's a shirt for a teddy bear or a barbie.. everything on wish. Makes me think of 75 % smaller

Why do you keep saying it was/is $60, when your title for this vid says $48?? And at c5:20 why did you freak out/panic for just a cable touching the fan?? Have you never built before??

It says its a 1050 Ti, but it’s not an actual 1050. They tricked GeForce Experience.

I bought a socket set off wish like 2 years ago for 15$ it works and is a totally fine kit but about a month ago someone hacked into my wish account and spend 2200$ on knock off fitbits, had to make a claim through my credit card and never using that junk app again

I have been shopping on Wish since that company's startup. I love shopping on Wish. There is a method to shopping on Wish. I never buy the first item I see. You can find the same item much cheaper if you do a bit of searching for either the same item or a related item.


I would never give my credit card to any questionable company. Especially a non-American company. This is what PayPal is for. And even then, I opened a debit bank account just for my PayPal account where I put a limited about of money. Then as I really don't understand why, why anyone would purchase anything over $30 on Wish. Most items I purchase are less than $4 with no shipping charges.


One thing I have noticed is that you can find the same sellers on Amazon and Ebay but items there are crazy more expensive.


Still, I was sold on shopping on wish.com because if I don't either get what I purchased, it is broken, doesn't fit or whatever....they refund my purchase.
It is not always true that if it seems too good to be true, it is. The key is to be wise on Wish or any other shopping outlet.
